Great Itinerary Poor Ship

I chose this trip for the itinerary, but I overpaid for a worn out ship. The ship rolled a lot in the rough waters. There were no stabilizers. We paid for one of the best cabins but it looked like a Hilton from ...

The Great Barrier Reef cruise that did not meet our total expectations.

This was our 14th cruise, it being the second on an Azamara ship in the last 3 years. We were expecting another 5 star cruise, however it fell short of our expectations. We agree with recent reviews that the dining ...
